Will Tom Ellis be on Miranda: My Such Fun Celebration?

Welsh actor Tom Ellis breakthrough role was as Miranda’s husband Gary.

Since the show came to an end in 2009, Ellis went on to become a Hollywood star after landing the role of the titular character in Fox’s and now Netflix’s Lucifer.

He last appeared in the New Year’s Day special in 2015, when he and Miranda finally tied the knot.

At the moment, the BBC or Tom Ellis have not confirmed whether he will appear on the New Year’s Day special.

Speaking to comedy.co.uk, Miranda Hart teased who will be returning for the special.

She said: “I can tell you that my tiny elf of a friend in ‘Stevie’ was of course there by my side, as Sarah Hadland often is in real life and Stevie always is for Miranda.

“So Miranda and Stevie had a few sketch moments and naturally broke out into dance where possible. There was a certain someone who just had to say “such fun” and I thought the Palladium roof might come down!

“Whether my on-screen husband Tom Ellis managed to make it over from LA I couldn’t possibly tell you – he has been busy filming Lucifer, but maybe he sent a message, maybe he teleported himself – as I say, I couldn’t possibly say.”

Ellis does not appear in the trailer for the special or the credits, suggesting he may, unfortunately, be absent in person.

So far, the credits for the New Year’s Day Special are Miranda Hard, Sarah Hadland, Patricia Hodge and Sally Phillips.

In the series Hadland starred as Stevie Sutton, Miranda’s childhood friend, Hodge took on the role of her mother Penny and Phillips as another close friend.

Also appearing on Miranda: My Such Fun Celebration is McFly, Heather Small and The Kingdom Choir.

Tonight’s special episode will mark 10 years since Miranda aired on screens.

During the special, Hart and the cast reflect on their favourite moments from the series.

Speaking to the Radio Times, Hart said: “What happened with my sitcom and comedy alter-ego over the last 10 years has been unexpected to say the least, so it’s very moving for me to have the chance to celebrate and thank my cast and the fans from The Palladium stage.

“We are hoping to put together a what I call such fun hour of television for them all.”

Back in November 2019, Ellis did share a touching tribute to Miranda to celebrate 10 years since Miranda first aired, so there is always the potential he will make a surprise appearance.

He captioned the photograph of him and Miranda: “10 years ago today the first episode of #Miranda aired on @bbctwo It will always be a precious time in my career.

“My affection for the people involved knows no bounds. Especially my dear friend and genius @realmirandahart #10yearsofsuchfun.”
